Emollient Breezes Half-Mile at Keeneland

On Friday morning, Juddmonte Farms’ homebred Emollient worked for the first time since her front-running, nine-length victory in the Central Bank Ashland Stakes (G1) on April 6. Ridden by Rodolphe Brisset, assistant to trainer Bill Mott, the three-year-old Empire Maker filly breezed a half-mile in :48.80.

Clockers caught Emollient in fractions of :24.40, :48.80 and galloping out in 1:02.40.

“For her first breeze back, we didn’t want anything crazy,” Brisset said. “It was a normal breeze for the Mott team. Now we have to make sure she comes out in good order tomorrow morning. She will ship to New York tomorrow afternoon. I’m going with her.”

Brisset said there was “no plan in store right now” for Emollient’s next race, adding, “We keep everything open.”

Emollient won the Central Bank Ashland a week after she finished fifth in the Gulfstream Oaks (G2). She has three wins in six starts and has earned $441,900.
